In case any of you were wondering, I was not endorsed in any way for this post. My kids just really love Lego-themed games and movies, especially when their favorite superheroes make an appearance.

I don't think we've been to the movies as a family since Wall-E came out in theaters. It's expensive and kids aren't always the best theater guests, and I'm not a huge movie goer anyway. That's more my husband's thing.

Boasting beautiful animation, a charming voice cast, laugh-a-minute gags, and a surprisingly thoughtful story, The Lego Movie is colorful fun for all ages. -Quoted from Rotten TomatoesI think the movie started just a tad too slow; but maybe that's because I had an anxious 3.5 year-old who decided he loved the movie the minute Batman appeared, and not a second earlier. However, Gabe (3.5 years-old) and Talon (7 years-old), both enjoyed this movie a lot. My husband and I enjoyed it too, making it a great family movie choice.
Retrieved from Rotten Tomatoes.Gabriel was a little antsy, at first, but I think having to sit through a bunch of previews that he didn't care about contributed to that. Otherwise, we made it through 90% of the movie before we took a mini break to refill the popcorn and drink we shared between the four of us. When we got back, Gabe sat on the floor with his head smooshed between two seats in front of us and was glued to the movie screen.
We were forced to sit through the credits while my kids named off the color legos in the background images and Gabriel rated the colors a 'yes' or a 'no.' Talon has already decided we need to buy it when it comes out. This movie was a great choice, and I'm so glad that we went to see it. If you were wondering, my favorite character is Firestar (the unicat thing).
